Prosecutors asked the Tokyo District Court on Monday to levy a fine of ¥800,000 against an artist charged with obscenity for distributing 3-D scans of her own genitals.

Megumi Igarashi, 43, who works under the pseudonym Rokudenashi-ko (Good-for-nothing Girl), maintained her innocence on the charges of distributing obscene objects through the Internet in return for money, arguing that her artwork uses female genitalia as its subject but is not of a salacious nature.

In her final statement, Igarashi called for an impartial judgment by the court.
